Specs-wise, the Eee PC 900 was loaded with 1GB RAM, an Intel Celeron CPU running at 900MHz, 1.3MP webcam, and an 8.9-inch LCD.
The Eee PC 900 also became an instant hit among the continuously growing netbook users. But as they grow fond of the Eee PC netbook, these users started to feel that they needed more power. Incidentally, sometime in June 2008, Intel released its new CPU called the Intel Atom processor which was made specifically for netbook use.
And so, Asus released its first Atom-powered Eee PC called the Eee PC 901. It sported the same chassis as the Eee PC 900 but with the Intel Atom Processor with a clock speed of 1.6GHz. It utilized the Intel 945GSE chipset which was required to run Windows Vista Aero version.
Specs-wise, the Eee P 901 certainly was a big improvement with a 6-cell battery providing longer usage time and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. The Eee PC 901 debuted with a price tag of around $559 in the U.S.
Following the Eee PC 901, Asus has also released the Eee PC 904. Finally, it was time for the Eee PC netbook to graduate from the SSD storage into a full-blown SATA HDD. The Eee PC 904 was the first Eee PC to come packed with an 80GB HDD. If also has the same features and specs as the other Eee PC 900 models though.
Other models of the Eee PC 900 series include the 904HA, 904HD, 900SD, 900HA, 900HD, and 900A.
